Galaxy Note 10 Pro camera pack leak explains high price

Today we’re going to take a peek at the cameras included on the near-most-expensive Samsung phone ever released. We had a chat earlier this week about why the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro won’t necessarily be THE most expensive Samsung phone ever released. Today we’re speaking about some of the details that might make this phone more appealing than the most expensive Samsung phone – another device that’s not yet been sent to consumers.

Earlier this week we cut apart the pricing structure for the Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy Fold. It’s been tipped that the Galaxy Fold will retain the champion belt for most-expensive-ever for a Samsung smartphone – at least until the end of this year. The next most expensive phone will be the larger of the two Galaxy Note 10 units coming in August.

The larger device goes by the name Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro, and it’s been leaked as having a 6.75-inch display with a potential 90Hz image refresh rate. Given the relative low cost of this sort of display, it’d sort of be shocking to find Samsung NOT using a 90Hz display by August of this year.

This device is tipped to roll with the slimmest bezels on any Samsung phone yet released. It’ll also have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC or Exynos 9820 depending on region. The battery inside will be approximately 4500mAh with 45W fast charging with USB-C.

There’ll of course be an S Pen embedded in the body of this smartphone, but not a whole lot’s been leaked about any changes that’ve been made to this tool since the Galaxy Note 9. Maybe nothing has changed at all?

NOTE: If it weren’t already obvious, all details I’m speaking about here come from leaks, tips, and pre-announcement data. Nothing here’s been confirmed by Samsung, and it all could be subject to change. We’re close to release, but we’re not there yet!

On the back is where we get the biggest bit of excitement, save the several confirmed front-facing features we looked at yesterday. On the back we’ve got a set of cameras that’ll bring about new functionality for the Galaxy Note 10 Pro, starting with a ToF camera sensor.

In the center on the right of this camera array is the ToF (time of flight) 3D depth sensor. This is similar to what you’ll find on some front-facing arrays over the last year, allowing facial scanning for face-unlock. This back-facing ToF sensor will unlock Samsung’s “Make & Play 3D” system of augmented reality and in-phone 3D features.

This phone will be able to capture spatial, depth, and distance with sensors on its backside camera array. Other devices with this sensor include the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the Galaxy A80.

At the top on the right is an LED flash module, and on the bottom is a flood illuminator. On the left are the primary, wide, and telephoto lenses. The placement of these individual modules was leaked by a Weibo leakster by the name of Martian-X (original post link source since removed). This information was later given a resounding “looks right to me” by a secondary source with knowledge on the subject who wished to remain anonymous.

If the camera lenses remain the same as the leak we reported earlier this year, the three modules on the left (and the ToF on the right) are as the list below suggests.

• 12 MP, f/1.5-2.4, 26mm (wide), 1/2.55″, 1.4µm, Dual Pixel PDAF, OIS

• 12 MP, f/2.4, 52mm (telephoto), 1/3.6″, 1.0µm, AF, OIS, 2x optical zoom

• 16 MP, f/2.2, 12mm (ultrawide)

• TOF camera (Time of Flight, 3D sensor)

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will have cameras very similar to (and quite possibly identical in some hardware) to that of the Galaxy S10 5G. That device is rather expensive in and of itself – so a slightly costlier Galaxy Note 10 Pro would not be a shock. With the high-end array of cameras and sensors at the back, a larger-than-ever Infinity-O AMOLED display up front, and the robust set of features we’ve come to expect from the Galaxy Note in general, the Pro will certainly make a strong attempt at justifying its large cost.

We’re expecting the Samsung event for this device and the standard Note 10 to come on August 7th, 2023. That’ll then suggest a preorder date that same week, then a release date for Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro of late August, 2023.

Moto G Pro Review: Galaxy Note On A Budget?


Surprisingly good camera

Great battery longevity

Unrivalled as a stylus-toting mid-ranger


Confusing branding

Generic design

Stylus lacks features

Our Verdict

An unassuming phone, for the most part, the Moto G Pro is accented by the addition of an integrated stylus that could do more. Beyond that, it’s classic mid-range Motorola – a well-rounded package with a clean user experience and great battery life.

Best Prices Today: Motorola Moto G Pro




View Deal

The stylus used to be one of the defining features of ‘smart devices’, back in the age of the PalmPilot and its reign more or less continued until Steve Jobs famously berated the peripheral while introducing the touch-driven original iPhone in 2007 – changing attitudes towards smartphone interaction, forever.

Of course, since then Apple’s – and the wider mobile industry’s – opinion of the stylus has softened, to the point that it’s been able to enjoy something of a renaissance.

While today’s stylus-toting stars are namely Samsung’s Galaxy Note range and the pairing of iPad and Apple Pencil, there’s definitely room for more players in the space, especially at more affordable climbs; a region that Motorola is exploring with the Moto G Pro.

What’s meant by ‘Pro’?

Before we look at the hardware, there’s something to be said for that name – it’s confusing. Namely, because there’s nothing particularly ‘pro’ about this phone’s spec sheet compared to other 2023 Moto G-series phones, so we’re assuming that the ‘Pro’ here stands for ‘productive’ or ‘productivity’, rather than ‘professional’.

The G Pro’s US counterpart is actually called the Moto G Stylus – a far more apt title that didn’t stick when the phone travelled across the Atlantic, for reasons unclear. Mixed-up monikers aside though, what does the Moto G Pro actually bring to the table?

Same face, new party trick

While there’s something to be said for creating a consistent brand aesthetic, we’d wager that you’d have trouble telling most of Motorola’s Moto G8 and 2023 Moto G devices apart.

Place the Moto G Pro alongside the Moto G8 and the G8 Power, and there’s little beside from back colour to easily identify which phone is which. All feature 6.4in displays with a hole-punch front-facing camera in the top left and all employ a centrally-positioned rear fingerprint sensor with the Motorola ‘M’ logo sat within it, alongside a four-piece camera setup accented by a single larger sensor at the top.

The stylus

The G Pro comes with one obvious distinction, however – a stylus that slides neatly into the right corner of its frame (favouring right-handed users over lefties). The exposed end – that marries up with the geometry of the G Pro’s bodywork when docked – is colour-matched to its attractive Mystic Indigo finish (a pearlescent deep blue that fades to near black against the light), while the rest of the stylus itself is actually made of metal.

This came as a pleasing surprise considering both the Apple Pencil(s) and Samsung’s S Pen are predominantly plastic – there’s an obvious reason for this, though. Unlike these other styli, the G Pro’s offering doesn’t contain any internalised components. On the downside, this means no additional smart features – like air gestures, tilt or pressure control, or replaceable nibs – on the upside, it makes for a more resilient writing tool, that won’t flex under-finger.

Its oval cross-section sits nicely in the hand and while you’re unlikely to spend hours using it in a single sitting, it feels comfortable to use for extended periods, despite its size.

The rest of the phone

The G Pro comes with a case pre-fitted in-box and generally, there’s little reason to remove it (it’s a clear, flexible TPU offering) unless you hate the look, already have another case in mind or simply prefer your phones naked.

Case off, however, the phone sports pleasantly-thin bezels around its display (especially considering its price), a nicely-rounded plastic back for comfort, and a sturdy frame – albeit with some hard edges that aren’t quite as nice to handle.

A centrally-mounted fingerprint sensor is perfect for ambidextrous use, although it can be a little picky about getting a firm read on your print before unlocking.

Complex sound, simple display

Next to the USB-C port at its base, the G Pro also totes a 3.5mm headphone jack, which will likely appeal to those who aren’t yet ready to make the jump to wireless headphones.

Unlike older affordable offerings, the G Pro doesn’t require wired headphones in order for its integrated FM radio to function (although it helps) and as an extension of Motorola’s software offerings, you’ll find Moto Audio in the apps drawer.

This gives you Dolby-tuned audio profiles, suited to scenarios like ‘Film’, ‘Music’ and ‘Game’ that you can flip between, depending on the context.

It works across the phone’s own loudspeakers, remotely-connected speakers and headphones; granting you an optimised audio profile with a tap or the option to customise sound with an impressive level of granularity. There’s also a ‘Smart’ option if you’d rather not fuss with EQ settings at all.

It’s worth noting that the phone packs a pair of stereo loudspeakers that, although not earth-shattering (they deal out some pretty flat sound that shouldn’t really be pushed too hard during media playback) are a nice inclusion on such an affordable device.

As for the display, the 6.4in Full HD+ IPS LCD offers a pleasant amount of real estate on which to work when using the stylus, pushing out pleasing colours and solid overall brightness. It appears a little on the cool side by default, though, which can only readily be rectified by using the Night Light feature (intended to reduce eye strain during evening/low-light viewing) as a stand-in for proper colour temperature controls.

Contrast and brightness also suffer the moment the screen is viewed off-angle – seldom an issue when using the phone normally but a potential problem when you’ve set the G Pro down on a table to write notes with the stylus or, more importantly, attempt a bit of illustration.

A stylus experience that could have been more

The Moto G Pro is an Android One-based device, meaning it sports Motorola’s already-excellent near-stock take on Android 10 but also comes with the guarantee of prompt app, software and security updates direct from Google, without question.

Moto Audio is just one aspect of Motorola’s various software tweaks and additions; none of which make the user experience feel cluttered. You’ll find a myriad of handy gestures – called Moto Actions – to access things like the camera or torch instantly (all of which work reliably), as well as more nuanced experiences.

Moto Display’s adaptive on-screen media controls are always appreciated and additions like Moto Gametime offer control over notifications and companion apps that gamers might find useful while in-game, such as Discord. Then there are the stylus-specific additions, which could be described as ‘barebones’.

Motorola gets the fundamentals right, with quick access to the Moto Notes app by pulling the stylus to jot something down when the phone is locked, alongside a customisable shortcuts menu with room for up to four quick-access actions and/or apps.

One subtle alteration to Gboard – Google’s native Android keyboard – is that instead of featuring a button that takes you straight to your emojis, on the G Pro it defaults to a handwriting input field for use with the stylus. Better yet, handwriting recognition isn’t terrible – although not the preferred way to input text on a smartphone in 2023.

I just wish that Motorola had done more with the stylus to really make its inclusion worthwhile; additions that could have been powered by existing software. One of the fundamentals being handwriting-to-text, which would have added far more power to the G Pro’s note-taking capabilities.

Shape detection – to create recognisable forms from misshapen squiggles – would have been great for diagrams and illustration, and Google-powered translation using the stylus as a means to highlight foreign-language text, all seem like features that could have been implemented without the G Pro’s development team having to jump through too many hoops.

There’s a chance that Motorola could append new capabilities such as these to the software via future updates but considering the G Pro’s standing in the lineup, this seems unlikely.

Respectable longevity

Considering the pricing of the Moto G Pro, you need to temper your expectations with regards to the stylus’ performance. Latency is wholly useable but you’ll see and feel a notable delay between what you write or draw and its appearance on-screen, especially when moving the stylus quickly – an Apple Pencil this is not.

As for the wider phone experience, Motorola has ensured that the G Pro feels perfectly comfortable in day-to-day use. It isn’t going to multitask with lightning-fast responsiveness and demanding experiences like the camera app take a fraction longer to load than they would on something beefier, like the Motorola Edge, but such speed is above the G Pro’s price tag and it’s not a sluggish phone, considering its price.

Humble hardware usually results in respectable longevity and the G Pro is a great performer in this regard – clocking in just over 11 hours in our PCMark battery benchmark. It also supports 15W fast charging, which takes around two hours to fully replenish the phone’s 4000mAh cell – not exactly blistering but, like the phone’s general performance, comfortably liveable.

Surprising snapper

I was surprised by the abilities of the G Pro’s primary 48Mp sensor. Dynamic range is above what I’d expect for a phone at this price point and in natural light, both colours and quality bokeh can be found in most shots.

It’s interesting comparing the main sensor’s macro capabilities with the phone’s dedicated 2Mp macro sensor.

You can get much closer to your subject with the latter, which has value, but the image processing and degradation in quality, if you dare to crop in even a millimetre, is too severe for my liking. Capture a shot using the main snapper from further back and zoom in afterwards and you’ll likely get a better photo.

As for the 16Mp ultrawide sensor, it’s strange that there’s no dedicated way to switch to it when shooting stills but the ability to shoot decent wide-angle 1080p video while holding the phone in-portrait is a feature I wish more phones had.

Price & availability

The Moto G Pro costs £289.99 making it the second-most expensive member of the Moto G/G8 family right now after the Moto G 5G Plus. Based on its spec sheet it sits neatly between the Moto G8 and Moto G8 Plus.

It’s available to purchase from Motorola’s official website, as well as approved online retailers like Amazon and in the UK specifically, the likes of John Lewis too.


For the price, the Moto G Pro is a well-rounded, affordable mid-range device; with a pleasant design, functional everyday performance and a considered user experience. Motorola could have done more with the stylus but it meets the basic needs of anyone after what is to be considered a niche feature.

In a strange sense, the Moto G Pro is effectively unrivalled; the most obvious alternatives taking the form of the newly-launched Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra – with their signature S Pen, but these are both flagship phones with price tags three-to-four times larger than the one attached to the Pro.

If you decide you don’t actually care enough about the stylus, after all, the aforementioned members of the Moto G8 family, as well as offerings like the Realme 6 Pro, will grant you a tad more bang for your buck.

Redmi Note 10 5G, Note 10 Pro 5G With Dimensity Socs Launched In China

After launching the Redmi Note 10S with the Helio G95 SoC in India recently, Xiaomi has launched two new Redmi Note 10 devices in China today. The Redmi Note 10 5G and Note 10 Pro 5G are pretty different from the Redmi Note 10-series that launched in India back in March this year. These devices pack MediaTek Dimensity 5G chipsets, 5,000mAh battery, support 5G connectivity, and more. So, let’s take a look at the key specs and features of these new Redmi Note 10 devices, shall we?

Redmi Note 10 5G and Note 10 Pro 5G Launched Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G

Starting with the higher-end Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G, the device comes with a 6.6-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD panel, unlike its 4G counterpart, which is sold outside China and comes with an AMOLED panel. Nonetheless, the panel has a 120Hz screen refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. It boasts a peak brightness of 1100nits and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection on top.

Turning to the optics, the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G packs a triple-camera setup at the back with a primary 64MP sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro lens. The cameras are housed inside a rectangular module on the back. At the front, there is a 16MP selfie camera housed inside the centered punch-hole cutout.

As for the battery, the device packs a huge 5,000mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging. As per the company’s claims, you can fully charge up the device in under 42 minutes. The Mi 67W fast charger is included in the box.

Apart from these, the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication and payments. Plus, it boasts Hi-Res-certified JBL-branded dual stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos.

The device comes in three color variants, namely Magic Green, Moon Soul, and Star Yarn with a “3D stereoscopic texture” at the back. It runs the Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 out-of-the-box.

Redmi Note 10 5G

Coming to the lower-end Redmi Note 10 5G, the device features a smaller 6.5-inch Full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The panel comes with a 2400 x 1080p resolution and a peak brightness of 500 nits.

Coming to the internals, the device packs the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC, which is a 5G-supported chipset based on the 7nm architecture. It comes with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.

The device also packs a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support. Moreover, it comes with an IR sensor, USB-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and dual SIM support.

There are four color variants of the Redmi Note 10 5G, which include White, Blue, Gray, Green, and Blue. The device, similar to the Pro variant, runs the Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 out-of-the-box.

Price and Availability Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G

8GB + 256GB – ¥1,999 (~Rs 22,752)

Redmi Note 10 5G

8GB + 256GB – ¥1,599 (~Rs 18,200)

The devices will become available to buy in China starting from June 1. Plus, Xiaomi is offering a ¥100 discount across all its products, including the Redmi AirDots 3 Pro that launched alongside the above devices.

Galaxy Note 10 May Come Dressed In A Galaxy S10 5G Body

Ever since Samsung started releasing a Plus variant of its Galaxy S flagship phones, one of the features that used to make the Galaxy Note series unique is no longer a factor.

For years, the Galaxy Note offered the biggest display screen on any Samsung flagship phone, but lately, things have been taking a twist thanks to the increasingly popular Plus variants. The latest Galaxy S10+ has a massive 6.4-inch display screen, the same size as the latest Note device, the Galaxy Note 9.

The S10+ goes even further to ship with the same battery capacity as a device that is meant to be a powerhouse, leaving the S Pen as the only standout feature of the Note 9. This wasn’t the case a while back and apparently, these margins are set to grow even smaller with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

According to a report published by Slashgear, the Galaxy Note 10 will ship with a screen size that is bigger than the current Note 9 but potentially the same size as the Galaxy S10 5G. The publication points to a source familiar with the subject, claiming that the 6.66-inch panel will stick to the same QHD+ (1440×3040) resolution as the 5G variant of the S10, suggesting that the panels will be of the same size.

What is still unclear, though, is whether the panel will also come with a wider cutout to house a dual-lens selfie camera akin to the S10 5G, but the report notes that we are looking at a screen-to-body ratio of over 89%.

Also, the report doesn’t sound solid on whether the Galaxy Note 10 will be the first Samsung device to come with 5G as the standard modem, but even if it doesn’t, we are still looking at the potential use of the same processor as the Galaxy S10 series. It’s also possible that the Note 10, like the S10, could get a 5G-specific variant.

On the photography front, once again, the report draws similarities with the Galaxy S10 5G. This means that the Note 10 may come in with up to four lenses on the back, the fourth being a 3D ToF sensor. The front could also get the same dual-lens treat as the S10 5G.

Of course, the S Pen will still keep its place, potentially making it the only remaining unique feature of the Note series. It will reportedly keep all the goodies of the Note 9’s S Pen as well as add some new features and improvements here and there.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was unveiled in August 2023 and apparently, the Note 10 will also get an August launch date. The report says this will happen on Thursday 8th, with availability set for August 23rd, but then again, nothing here has been approved by Samsung, so be sure to take this with a grain of salt.

With prices of smartphones ever on the rise, we are once again looking at yet another price hike for the Note 10, meaning the base model could start at above $1000.

We still have months between now and August, so expect more of these Note 10 rumors to come your way.


Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Goes Official With $999 Price Tag And A Super

With the consistent flow of leaks and speculations, followed by teaser videos from the Korean giant itself, Samsung has launched its much-awaited flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 9, at its signature ‘Unpacked’ launch event in New York.

Price And Availability

The Note 9 will be sold in a 6GB RAM / 128GB storage model for $999 and a top-tier model with 8GB RAM and 512GB storage version for $1,250. Pre-orders will begin on August 10, and the phone will be available on August 24 in the US. Samsung has not yet announced the availability and pricing for India.

The Galaxy Note 9 will be available in four colors – Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue, Midnight Black, Lavender Purple, with matching contrasting S-Pen.

Galaxy Note 9: Build and Display

The Korean giant has still gone for its traditional glass-sandwich design, with the Infinity display and glass back. It has further trimmed down the bezels at the top and bottom to now include a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ AMOLED screen into the Galaxy Note 9.

The major highlight of the design update will, however, have to be the decision to move the fingerprint sensor under the camera module. It was previously located to the right of the camera module on the Galaxy Note 8. So basically, there’s a modest improvement in the design and build.

Galaxy Note 9: Key Specs

Just like most Android flagships launched in 2023, the Galaxy Note 9 is powered by the latest and greatest from Qualcomm, i.e the Snapdragon 845 processor (and Exynos 9810 for some markets) and either 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, or 8GB RAM and 512GB storage.

The Galaxy Note 9’s camera also comes with a number of AI features like the scene optimizer, which means it can detect scenes and objects. There’s also improved low-light live focus mode (portrait), flaw detection, and super slow-mo mode on board, similar to Galaxy S9+.

The Galaxy Note 9 comes with a larger 4,000mAh battery pack as compared to its predecessor, which shows that Samsung has left its explosive Note 7 days in the past. It also includes a USB-C charging port along with everyone’s beloved 3.5mm audio jack. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box, with Bixby in tow.

To sum it all up, here’s a quick look at the key specs of the Galaxy Note 9:

Galaxy Note 9: S-Pen Features

Everyone fancies the flagship Galaxy Note lineup for one primary reason, the S-Pen. This add-on accessory that fits right in the device’s body is easily accessible and is the perfect tool to further productivity. Samsung has now made the S-Pen even more useful with the introduction of Bluetooth support. It also has its own battery pack, which charges within just 1 minute when you place the pen back in the device.

Yes, connecting the S-Pen to the Galaxy Note 9 via Bluetooth to get access to a ton of features. You can use the new S-Pen to play and pause YouTube videos, capture photos or flip through slides in Microsoft Powerpoint.

Fortnite Exclusivity

Confirming yet another leak, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney stepped out on stage at the event to announce that Fortnite for Android is finally here but it’ll be exclusive to Galaxy devices – not just the Galaxy Note 9. It is available right away and you can download it via Epic’s own website and the Samsung Galaxy Apps store, with no info on when the exclusivity will come to an end.

Yes, the Galaxy Note lineup has always been popular among gamers and Epic Games is banking on the same to finally launch its popular battle royale game on Android.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Hands

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 hands-on: yes, it is a phone too

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, you’ve got another dare to guess from the manufacturer – is it a tablet, or is it a smartphone? In this case you’ll not be able to tell based simply on the device’s ability (or inability) to make phone call as, yes, you can indeed do so with the 3G international release. Inside the United States we’re not quite going to be so lucky to have such an oddity on our hands as an 8-inch display-toting smartphone, at least not at first: we’ll have to settle for the strict tablet iteration.

This device is a Galaxy Note – Samsung’s brand for a line of devices that in some cases are closer to smartphones, in some cases much more a tablet. The Galaxy Note 8.0 works with an 8-inch WVGA (1280 x 800 pixel resolution, 189PPI) and working with TFT LCD display technology, mind you. This device has a 1.6GHz quad-core A9 processor for all your next-generation processing action, and you’ve got a couple of cameras on it as well – 5 megapixels on the back, 1.3 megapixels on the front.

Backing up that processor inside you’ve got 2GB of RAM, either 16 or 32GB of built-in storage, and a microSD card slot able to work with up to 64GB cards. The 3G version of this device is 210.8 x 135.9mm small with 338g of weight on it – this version also works with A-GPS and GLONASS. You’ll also of course be working with wifi, Wi-Fi Direct, BlueTooth 4.0, and AllShareCast. You’ve also got an IR-Blaster and Smart Remote to control any TV – not just the smart ones!

You’ll be working with a couple of new versions of apps, the first being the already popular but soon to be Samsung extra-excellent Awesome Note. There’s also a brand new exclusive Flipboard app made specifically for the Galaxy Note 8.0, complete with pop-up previews when you hover over blocks with your S-Pen. You can work with Popup Note, Popup Video, and Air View is active right out of the box as well. Essentially all the best bits of the Samsung Galaxy Note software experience can be found here, with some extra sugar on top.

Some of that sugar comes in the form of some new WACOM technology allowing your S-Pen to control not just the elements inside your display, but the Back and Menu buttons below it as well. Just like you’ve always wanted! This device works with Dual View as well as Reading Mode. This brand new Reading Mode you’ll have transformed your Galaxy Note 8.0 into an e-Book with optimized settings for the most well-balanced e-reading experience on any Galaxy Note device yet revealed.

You’ll also note that the design language from the Galaxy S III – and the Galaxy Note II, the Galaxy Note 10.1, and so on, continues here with the Galaxy Note 8.0. This device works with the same white back and front, same silver rim, and even a rather similar thinness as the newest handset Note (the Galaxy Note II, as shown here.) This device is as similar to the Galaxy Note II as the Galaxy Note II is to the original Galaxy Note – it’s just growing up!

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will be available in the second quarter of 2013 across the planet – or just in the following places, as it were: EUR, SWA, CHN, SEA, KOR, NA, MEA, LA, TW. The United States-based release will be coming at some other time – neither the precise date nor the price have yet been revealed.
